A teen died a hero after family says he shielded his 15-year-old cousin from gunfire in what cops have called a domestic dispute that ended up leaving eight people dead, including a police officer who responded to an initial domestic dispute call.

The suspect, Willie Godbolt, was arrested seven hours after the rampage began. He is currently in a hospital being treated for a gunshot wound, though it is unclear who shot him.
